Microsoft updates Store with subcategories shown on home

Microsoft has quietly implemented a new feature in Windows Store to access apps of different categories easier and faster. I think that this improvement makes new users feel easier to navigate to store because you can go to different categories without having to right click or tap which will bring the hidden navigation bar.

As you can see that the subcategories are now shown in home under Top categories label. Mouse users will appreciate this more because this brings their favorite apps closer without using the nav bar in Store. Microsoft is trying to capitalize this holiday season by selling many Windows copies and Surface tablets.

One more thing,Holidays has started , so a very very happy holidays to everyone ! Cheers 


  1. Mentioning categories in the store homepage was necessary. After all who would like to use navigation bar again & again.

    A very happy holidays to you too. Enjoy :)
